First Literacy Grant Funded Project
This project aims to provide video lessons targeted towards Chinese learners of English who want to improve their pronunciation and learn more outside of the classroom. The videos will be accessible via WeChat, a very popular social media application, and will include instruction, practice, and assessment of various pronunciation topics that are particularly challenging for Chinese speakers due to language transfer. The instruction will be light-hearted, fun, and involve pop culture and current events to keep students’ interest and make learning enjoyable. Students will also be able to engage with the videos by asking questions, commenting on the videos and sharing with friends.
